Dear friends and family of Dylan,

I was Dylan's English teacher his senior year of high school. Dylan had the best sense of humor and was incredibly kind. He frequently sought out and helped other students who struggled socially in the class. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. His smile and creativity will be truly missed.

Sincerely,
Liza Lauter

Dear family and friends of Dylan,

I was a classmate of Dylan at bloomfield hills. He was always the nicest person in the room, and made everyone feel comfortable.

One of my stand out moments of my life was when I was talking to him and a couple other people, and my so called “friends” came up to me and started using my nicknames (which were basically just slurs for the mentally ill). He immediately stood up for me. He told them off, and made sure I was ok afterwards.

If I ever needed to get away from them I could come to him. He was a safe haven for my last semester of high school.

I saw him frequently this past year at his place of work. I’d stop in and he remembered me immediately. He was happy, joking around and smiling.

I hope that he’s happy and safe now, and I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Dear family and friends of Dylan Brady,

I knew Dylan for a week in August 2018.

I had been visiting the US from the United Kingdom, working at a Summer camp for the previous 2 months with a friend of his called Adi Siegmann.

Adi invited me to stay at their new dorm for 1 week at Wayne state where they were just starting college college together.

Dylan is up there with the most humble, kind and personable people I met during my time in the US. I remember talking to him about his recent trip to scotland and how he had enjoyed himself there. I was lucky enough to stay for a week on the sofa in Adi and Dylans dorm where we hung out and had a lot of laughs.

Im grateful for having known him even for a very short time and I will continue to remember him.

To Dylan, Invictus Maneo.

I am in shock. I was Dylan’s high school art teacher. Dylan was extremely talented, hardworking, intelligent and kind to everyone. He was truly an original and will be deeply missed. I was thrilled to see the recent artwork he had been creating. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Sending lots of love and prayers.

Dylan was a kind, loving, and creative person who would go out of his way to help others. He could be anywhere, in any scenario, and would still stand out as the kindness soul in the room. His actions inspired me to always be kind. Your memories will be with us forever.

I assisted in the new member experience of Sigma Pi Fraternity when Dylan took his pledge as a new member. Dylan fully embodied the character sought after by the fraternity. He exemplified respect, empathy, passion, and kindness at the highest levels. He was a leader by virtue of his character, and we will make sure his memory guides our membership for years to come.

Dylans visits always brightened our home with laughter and great humor. I hold very special memories of his interaction with my children and animals. I’ll always remember his laugh when our jack Russell/beagle stole his pizza. He enjoyed telling about his own beagle stories. Another wonderful memory was 2016 Halloween when the BHS boys went trick or treating. Their playfulness packing into Marks car was a sight I’ll always hold in my sweetest memories. Dylan always delighted me when he talked about his family - he conveyed such love and appreciation for his parents, something unusual to hear from a High schooler.
My heart breaks for many reasons that our earth has lost him. I’m so sorry for all of us and the depths that we do/will miss him. Prayers for your family have been being said. Truly and with great sympathy to all of Dylan’s family
